  • The Good And Evil Of Free-To-Play (Yes, there is a good side)

    3
    There are probably no three words in the average gamer's vocabulary that are more contentious than Free To Play. Rather, due to a marketplace glutted with unsrupulous developers and their steady stream of shovelware, the term tends to evoke emotions... More
  • Nintendo... *sigh*

    3
    I don't blog on here often, but when I do, you better believe it's because I have something to say. So Nintendo has claimed ownership of the LPs of various Youtubers. I know that a lot of people will see this and think "why should I care... More
  • STOP LYING CONAN YOU LIKE GAMES.

    3
    I just watched Conan O' brian review Hitman Absolution. Ive never been so annoyed and amused at the same time as i was with this review / skit. Im assuming if your reading this blog youve seen the Connan review im talking about or have seen a different... More
  • 12/31 - The Great Debaters

    2 1
    With the Presidential and Vice Presidential debates upon us, I wanted to look back at games I've played that let you really lay into someone with words instead of fists (or at least, BEFORE fists.) Video games let you accomplish a whole manner of... More
  • 10 Questions: Hut Edition

    3
    Since reading Applesteak's, Kate Willaert's, and Stranger's 10 Questions blog, I decided I'm gonna give it a go too, if for no other reason to get out of my recent writer's block. So, let's begin. 1 – What is the first video... More
  • My Gaming Bucket List

    4
    As we all know, the next gen consoles that will be making their way into our homes this holiday season won't be backwards compatible. This of course means that once I buy my PS4 I'll more than likely never go back and use my PS3. I'm now left... More
  • Video Games as Other Games

    So I had a random thought as I hit my checkout button on a site... that I thought was odd. Why doesn't anyone ever mention some games that started as video games but have other iterations in our society? Who wouldn't want a Halo game that acts... More
  • Scoring a Legend: The Music of The Legend of Zelda (Part 1)

    2
    T he Legend of Zelda has offered gamers a plethora of iconic scores throughout its lifetime. From the opening notes that accompany the title banner to the medley showcasing the staff credits and familiar faces encountered throughout our time in Link's... More
  • Why so much hate?

    I just had to post this because I had been thinking it a long time. There is just so much pointless hate for some games and there is really no point to it. Earlier today, I was reading about Titanfall and the comments section was full of negitive comments... More
  • Pic of the Day Roundup: Mysterious Swordsmen and Explosive Lunchboxes

    5
    Video game hype is a magical thing. Depending on how frequently the developers of a title release new information on their upcoming game and the gravity of that information, people will begin to anticipate the arrival of this new game on unseen levels... More
  • Games: Escaping Reality Or Exploring It?

    5
    The last couple of weeks have been less than stellar. I've been plodding along, but it's been an uncomfortable go. I was talking about it to a friend, and I happened to say, "Thank god for games." His reply: "Yep. It's a nice... More
  • Community Writing Challenge: My Epitome Of Co-Op Greatness

    4
    As some of you may know, I was late to get on the last gen bandwagon. I didn't get my PS3 until January of 2010, and only then because I couldn't not play Little Big Planet any longer. I bought the game of the year edition of it before I ever... More
